I've read a lot of blog posts about different kinds of blog posts. However, not all of them are relevant to an educational context.
I thought it would be useful to collate some ideas about the types of content that teachers could put on their own blogs, or their school blogs.
I've come up with 70, many of which would be usable by pupils too. This crib sheet will, I hope, be very useful, especially if you'd like to experiment with new content or are finding it hard to come up with fresh ideas.
Some of the suggestions would also be useful exercises to set pupils even if their efforts are not for publication.
For example, I've listed several types of fiction, as well as word-free ideas -- ideal for pupils who wish to contribute but find that their poor typing and spelling hold them back.
Rather than make this list openly available, I've decided to take the advice of a number of well-known bloggers and give it as a "thank-you" for signing up to my newsletter, Digital Education.
It's free to sign up, of course, and if you decide to do so then you'll receive two emails.
The first will be to ask you if you're sure, just in case someone has tried to sign you up without asking you first.
Then, when you've confirmed that you really would like to subscribe, I'll send you a welcome email with a link to the July 2016 newsletter, details of how to access the freebies in the subscriber-only area, and the list of 70 kinds of blog post in the form a PDF.
If you are not sure whether to subscribe despite this incredibly amazing offer, then have a look at a sample issue. A good one is the post-Bett issue from February 2016. Well, they're all good in my opinion, but that one is especially meaty!
